INTRODUCTION                                                                                             Our organically crafted Milk Thistle Seed Oil or Milk Thistle Oil is obtained by cold pressing of the seeds of Silybum Marianum, recognizable in the summer months as a small purple plant. Silymarin, a flavonolignan complex, comes from the seeds of Milk Thistle and is believed to be the active constituent of Milk Thistle.
